The Mohs scale is used to rate minerals hardness. On the scale, sapphires are rated a 9. Diamonds are rated a 10, meaning that the only natural item that can scratch a sapphire is a diamond. This means that while not as durable as diamonds, sapphires are a safe choice for rings, as they are less susceptible to damage than a soft stone such as an opal, which is ranked at a 3 on the Mohs scale.

The history of sapphire engagement rings is rich and storied, with the first rings being popularized when in 1215, Pope Innocent III mandated that a sapphire would fade or change color if worn by an "impure" person. Sapphire rings were given to a woman to wear during the required 'engagement' period so they could watch the sapphire and ensure it had not faded or changed.
